Relay question...

I have a set of stock Rubicon Fog lights that I need to wire up on my X. I have the lights and a switch, I don't know much about relays though. What do I need to look for in a relay to hook them up on the cheap??

Thanks!

A relay is easy. Go pick a 30 amp relay up at checkers (4 or 5 pin it doesnít matter) and Iíll help wire it up if you want.

So is it only the amps and pins or are there other differences in the relays I need to look at?

Before you come over I’ll find the right trigger wire so you don’t need a new switch.

I really need to get a relay housing box like you have before rats start living in my engine bay. Between the winch, in cab winch control, fogs, CB, driving lights and rock lights I will install shortly it is turning into a real mess, lol.

Do you have a link to the box you got?
